Old Kinord

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


23/02/2013 - There's a few starting points for this one. Car park to the east, on the track to New Kinord is closest. To the west, the car park at Burn o'Vat is good if you want to visit the Vat as well. Today we took the sightly longer walk option and parked in Dinnet. Following the waymarked path, we walked a lovely circuit of about 7 miles round Loch Kinord with its crannog and the hut circles at Old and New Kinord. The weather was a bit cold but the sun came out now and again. The impressive Old Kinord settlement is just off the path that runs between Loch Davan and Loch Kinord. Pretty easy to find but not a great place to visit in the summer due to bracken. The settlement is quite large with well defined hut circles and nearby souterrain. If you like hut circles, this place is well worth a visit. A really nice walk in a birch wood. Canmore link below for more details. thelonious Posted by thelonious
